MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The book is devoted to functions such as quadratic and cubic polynomials, absolute value, square roots, etc. ... the Atlas comes with software for computing the functions described in the book. ... the Atlas is valuable as a reference, it also contains a large amount of expository text. ... The Atlas seems to have been written for the reader who is not in such a hurry and who might enjoy looking around a bit." (John Cook, The Mathematical Association of America, March, 2009)

"This is a compilation of several hundred functions that are frequently used by engineers, scientists, and mathematicians to obtain a quantitative result. ... Each chapter in this handbook discusses a function or a family of related functions for a total of 65 chapters. ... Each chapter contains definitions and properties for each function along with color graphs ... . Engineers, scientists, and mathematicians will find this reference book to be a handy resource for many years." (Electrical Insulation Magazine, 2009)

"This book provides elementary and basic information on several hundred functions ... . a combination of a book and software is useful for scientists concerned with the quantitative aspects of their field. ... layout of the book is modern with very nice colorful graphs or surfaces of functions. Each chapter contains a lot of information about the functions studied in that chapter. ... This book defends well its place in the mathematical literature." (Matti Vuorinen, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1167, 2009)

"This is the second edition of a handbook with same title ... . There are numerous other improvements throughout this new edition but the objective remains the same to provide the reader regardless of his or her discipline with a succinct compendium of information about all the common mathematical functions in use today. ... The layout of the book is excellent and it is a pleasure to see the glossy paper and the very high quality graphs. The inclusion of Equator is a useful contribution." (Mourad E. H. Ismail, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2010 f)
